Roller-coaster Day

So Mariah woke me up this morning at 6:41 saying she was contracting, and that she had been dreaming about contractions...good sign! For the next couple of hours, she had contractions every 12-13 minutes or so, lasting abou 35-45 seconds. Again, good sign.

We were so excited, we made lists and everything. Then the contractions stopped.

We went to the doctor and she said "it happens, it means you're almost ready but not quite".


So far it's been a contraction here and there...we'll see as the day progresses.

On a good note, this morning's incident made me decide to start my SEVEN WEEKS paternity leave starting TOMORROW. Whoo-hooo! No work until Dec.1st! :)

More later I guess...

Ah... The old Braxton-Hick's contractions, I presume?

Hang in there. Won't be long now.
